  1. I can never get them looking smooth after dipping, and I've only tried the plain round ones!! Still, they taste amazing. I will keep trying.

  2. Made Elmo ones for my daughter - but heat and humidty they were sliding right down the stick no matter how much chocolate I put on that stick. Good luck...

  3. I made the ice cream cone ones and they looked FANTASTIC. Until I quality controlled one. Oh my goodness, WAY too sweet. I think I added too much frosting. I was bummed because I was making them for my 40th birthday ice cream parlor party

  4. @events dee-signed...you might want to try and add shortening about a teaspoon at a time to your chocolate to thin it out until you get a smother consistency thats also not too runny...

    definitely freezing them 15 min and then 5 in the refrigerator will help...if they are too cold they can have cracks...learned that one the hard way!!!

  5. I always end up freezing them to long and cracking them! I made little pumpkins last Halloween, they were cute...cracks and all!

  6. I always have to give myself like 3 days of prep for cake balls or pops. one day to bake it, then I mix it up with the frosting and let it set over night. then one afternoon to roll them and let it set for several hours or overnight then on to the dipping and decorating. comes out so much better and I dont feel rushed or over burdened. sometimes you just dont have that kind of time though!

  7. These are sooo cute but for the life of me I can't get them to stay on the stick. I have made them without the stick and oooohhhh they are sooo good. Better luck next time!
